In the US and around the world camps are being used with great effectiveness for Christian outreach, guidance and mentorship. Annually, millions of people, young to senior adult, take part in camps all through the year; hundreds of thousands make significant spiritual decisions during or following their camp experience.
Camping has long been considered one of Christianity’s most effective mediums for impacting lives and growing the Church. For decades, leaders in all denominations have realized that Christian camping is unsurpassed for igniting faith, instilling character, and implanting ideals in participants, regardless of age or background. Christian camping is also considered by many to be the best means for inspiring an individual to a life of service.
Most evangelistic funding, events and programs emphasize reaching adults with the gospel. However, two thirds of all Americans who accept Jesus Christ as their savior do so before they reach the age of 18! Sixty-four percent accept Christ before age 18! Forty-three percent before age 13! And Most people do not accept Christ in a church setting so . . . let’s get camping!
The Christian and Missionary Alliance owns 12 Alliance Camps and many affiliated camps across the United States. The outreach is between 200,000 to 300,000 annually. Our mission is to reach those who attend camp with the Gospel of Christ and provide a place for growth and serious commitment.
People accepting Christ before the age of 13 are more likely to remain absolutely committed to Christ in their adult years than are people who do so in their later teenage or adult years. They have a much higher percentage of tithing, teaching and being evangelical. Most people have their spiritual and moral beliefs in place by 13!
Statistics say that seventy percent of all children in the US are born into Non-Christian Homes! Do you know some children that would benefit from attending camp this summer? Invite them, give a gift certificate, or donate to fund camp scholarships; together we can all make a difference.
If you are interested in serving the Lord by volunteering at camp, we have many opportunities from which to choose.
